Lewis Wright & Kit Downes (duets for vibraphone and piano)
Thursday 6th February 2020
Tickets: £15.00 Seat
With an eclectic array of influences that goes from Keith Jarrett to Miles Davis via Björk and Bartók, Lewis Wright and Kit Downes’ mesmerising brand of jazz is as impossible to categorize as it is to ignore. We are extremely excited that they will be performing a special show at Hampstead Jazz Club showcasing material from their critically acclaimed Duets album.
Having cut his teeth playing with everyone from Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra to Melody Gardot, Lewis Wright has earned a reputation as one of the finest musicians around. American jazz bible Downbeat magazine crowned him as one of their Rising Stars, whilst the Financial Times dubbed him ‘spellbindingly virtuosic.’
Mercury Music Prize nominee Kit Downes plays with an impressionistic style all his own. Having worked with a host of A-list musicians including Gilad Atzmon and Iain Bellamy, he is one of the most inventive pianists in the world. Whilst there is no doubt that this is jazz, the hypnotic music that Wright and Downes create together is utterly unlike anything you will have ever heard.
